Did you know?

In 1891, before any formal golf courses existed west of the Mississippi River, a band of homesick Scotsmen surpriseded the resident locals by burying tin cans into the dunes and then knocking balls with sticks until they dropped into the cans. For these Scots, the landscape at Gearhart was strongly reminiscent of the ancient links courses of their homeland.

On North America's west coast, Gearhart shares the spotlight with other pioneering layouts such as Victoria Golf Club (1893), Tacoma Country & Golf Club (1894) and Del Monte Golf Club (1897).
